Evolution of Revolution = WEBOLUTIOIN !!!

The Egyptian Revolution and Online Influence.

image

Not only has the social web been used to organize the demonstrations in Cairo’s Tahrir Square, it has also been one of the main sources for disseminating minute-by-minute updates on what has happened on the ground, from the joyous and triumphant victories of an empowered public, to the darker moments of brutality and violence. Seeing social media’s power to inform, organize & influence these situations is wildly fascinating.

But at TRAACKR, we have never been concerned with social media in general or even in specific platforms. We have always been focused on finding the PEOPLE who are driving the information and influence. So, the situation in Egypt provided a brilliant petri dish for this type of analysis.
